Help with Printer
Posted on 2008-11-11
We run a Win2K3 Terminal Server. We need to connect a client box that is running Kubuntu 8.04 OS. Using the Linux Terminal Services Client on the Linux box we can connect (through the internet) to the WIn2K3 server OK. We can even get the local hard drive on the linux box to be seen on the Win2K3 Server & can copy and paste files between the two.
The problem is we have a Samsung ML-2010 printer but cannot get the printer re-direction right. Win2K3 just does not see it. The printer works fine as a local printer on the Linux box.
I went into the printers window on the Win2K3 box & into server properties to try to load the driver however we are presented with options to load 95, 98, ME, XP 32 & 64 bit drivers only. No Linux.
What I did notice in the Terminal Services Client provided with Kubuntu there is only an option to connect the Local Hard Drive & not printers, clipboard & serial ports etc etc that can be found in the Windows Terminal Client software.
I don't know if I need another Linux client that has that printer checkbox or what. If so could someone recommend one that will do the job
Any help is appreciated
